Current industry sensation M.I.A. has hardly been missing in action the past few months, with her hit single, Paper Planes, hitting the Billboard Top 10. Recognizing her growing popularity, her label, Interscope, wisely decided to re-release her successful sophomore set, Kala, featuring a remix of Boyz with none other than Jay-Z. M.I.A. rhymes nimbly over a jangling beat that she co-produced with Switch, while Hova rants about the corruption of politicians and the need for Americans to vote for Obama. The combination of this budding international star and mainstream music mogul proves to be a powerful one, and this record will likely catch tons of spins at radio as a result. Watch for Kala’s re-release to hit stores and iTunes soon on Election Day, November 4.
